Ashbrook Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 14% 750ml

Ashbrook Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 14% 750ml

Our Reserve Cabernet fruit is hand-harvested over several days in the cool of the morning from 42 year old, dry grown, Wilyabrup grapevines (planted 1976). Destemmed berries are cold soaked before temperature controlled fermentation in 4 tonne open vats, plunged gently five times a day. Post-fermentation the wine is matured in 100% premium French oak barriques for 24 months before blending.

Established by the Devitt family in 1975, Ashbrook produced its first commercial wine (Riesling) in 1979 and its 30th vintage in 2008. Only grapes handpicked and grown on the Estate are used and all processing, winemaking, bottling and packaging are closely controlled using the Estate's own state of the art facilities Extensive use of the sophisticated "lyre" trellising system in the vineyard maximizes flavour potential and allows Ashbrook to produce only a premium label for each grape variety. All vineyard management techniques, including the application of composted mulch, are focused on the sustainable maintenance of excellent vine health. All grape picking and all vine pruning are carried out by hand.
